It was a good week....or was it?

Last week was a good week, scrapping-wise, but a bad week, health-wise.

Ugh, I spent the whole week sick with a sinus infection or something. In fact, I am still sick 8 days later and now I think I have an ear infection. So, last week was a bad week as far as that was concerned. Plus Sarah missed a day of school with a stomach bug.

It was a good week, as far as scrapping goes, even though I didn't really scrap any. I had spent the weekend participating in a special Valentine's Day event at Scrapbook Heaven. Lee designed some cute projects for us to do: see some of the results HERE on the blog. Well, it turns out that I WON! I think I won the add-on kit for their February kit (I have the kit; it is so awesome)!

And I wasn't the only winner: my friend, Jules, also won. I don't know what she got, though. Maybe she will share some of it with me? She has plenty! LOL

Also, this easel card that I made (my first one ever) using some cute Bella Blvd. papers, was a Layout of the Day and Friday Favorite at Scrapbook Heaven. I made this card for my dear friend Doris, who is battling cancer.

The picture is not great - Zach had borrowed my camera so I was using my iPhone.

Over at Cookin' Up Creations, this layout was Layout of the Week:

(again with the iPhone picture) I used beautiful My Mind's Eye Penny Lane papers and a Fiskars border punch and some cute K & Co stickers (the adorable lions). The page is about Sarah making the Mississippi Lion's All-State Band (sponsored by Lion's Clubs of MS). This is a big honor and we are so excited and proud. I was in the Lion's band in high school, and my dad was in it when HE was in high school, so she is third-generation!

Anyway, back to the scrapbook page, I used this great paper-pleating technique posted by Aymee on the TallyScrapper Blog. Go check it out!

Oh, I almost forgot! I traveled with the Indoor Drum Line to competition in Petal on Saturday. They won! Yay! They're just doing such a great job. State championships are in two weeks. Go Ridgeland! Here are a couple of pics (no action pics, sorry - camera battery is dead, can't upload)

Go cymbal girls!

Anyway, I guess that is a pretty good summary of the week! Hoping this one is a good one.

Aw, Pinky, I'm sorry you're sick! Hope you get to feeling better soon. Love your card and layout! I still have to try that paper pleating technique; I keep forgetting!
